Don Quixote: Reading

Don Quixote is my favorite book. This is the ingenious old gentleman himself, filling his head with romantic tales until his brain turns to dust. He will soon depart (minus his brain) to become the most glorious knight-errant in all of Christendom. Is the loss of his wits a subtraction or an addition?

You might enjoy 'Monsignor Quixote' by Graham Greene, about a similar loss, this time of faith. Did he lose or gain?

One of my favorites of yours...the scale is very telling, the little man being conquered by the weighty tomes. And the prose you wrote to go with it is lovely.
